A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Prince Onu, says there is no rift between Gov. Dave Umahi of Ebonyi and Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu.
The APC chieftain described the rumoured rift as “false and unfounded’’, saying it was the handwork of political jobbers, who “thrive in building discord and playing mind games’’.
Onu said there was cordial relationship between the minister and the governor, adding that they understand themselves as leaders giving that they had been strong allies in the defunct ANPP.
He called on members of the party in Ebonyi to remain unflinching in their support for Umahi and “disregard the commentary of impasse’’ between him and the minister. (NAN)
